Names: Amelia’s Apple was named after 11-year-old Amelia Bassett, who died from kidney cancer in May 2011. Amelia’s father Roy, manager of the M&S store in Ilkeston, was the unanimous winner of a competition to name the apple for M&S. The Great Ormond Street Hospital are beneficiaries of a donation from M&S related to sales of the variety.
